Carolina Lakes, located just outside the Charlotte metropolitan area, is a resort-style retirement community based on the enormously popular Sun City concept by Del Webb. Real estate options here consist of single-family detached homes and villas. Del Webb’s first Sun City community was built over 40 years ago just outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

Sun City Carolina Lakes now brings this offering to the property seekers of South Carolina. The community sprawls over 1,200-plus acres of Lancaster County’s beautiful, rolling hills, dotted with forested areas and several shimmering lakes. Physical amenities include an 18-hole golf course and a 35,000-square foot recreational center, where residents can stay busy and fit by participating in a variety of athletic and social activities. When fully built out, Sun City Carolina Lakes is expected to have more than 3,300 homes and nearly 10,000 residents. The community is located just south of the North Carolina/South Carolina border; nearby landmarks include the Ballantyne Country Club and the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
